Hi guys. In our latest film, we have the main character scaling a mountain. We are filming the actor from above climbing with a sheer drop below. (Hope that makes sense).

We need it convincing, maybe showing a field or town down below. Can anybody do this for us? thanks

You should be able to do this with green screen. Try the CompositeLab demo. You should find it more than capable of handling the shot you describe.

This may help as well.

I use a chroma keying software already, called EditStudio. Can you point me in the direction of a FREE stock footage site? (one where I might find the image I need)?
